5:46 am
for us to get back out there doing some workouts the past few days because today is a good rest day. it is cooler cloudier and it's about to be a little rain here, too. >> your view it outside here at the east bay hills. we do have some wet conditions around berkeley, but it's not really because of rainfall more so because of some misty conditions that we've seen are right around here. rain to the north missed in the middle and then to the south, not a whole lot of anything actually looking at dry conditions for the santa clara valley, aside from some pockets of fog, we have a sprinkle up in the santa cruz mountains. that's all we've got for the south bay right now. a couple of misty spot stretching from san francisco, the peninsula on over towards oakland, richmond, up to the lay home and then the north bay, some light to moderate showers for you and mostly up into sonoma and northern napa counties as well as near the coastline and marin counties. you head further toward san pablo bay and the golden gate and things start to die down really quickly with just some misty spots there. rainfall is moving in a northeasterly direction. so it's actually
5:47 am
not hitting most of the bay area. and this frontal boundary is stalling out right before it lands in the bay. what does that mean for us? all that rainfall that we love to see passing through, giving us all a good dose is going to be hanging out mostly to our north, avoiding most of the bay area. and rainfall totals are going to suffer because of that. now as we move through futurecast, you see how showers mostly stay to the north through the day. we will see a couple of sprinkles in san francisco. likely richmond, too. the mostly it will be sonoma, mendocino lake and portions of napa counties that get in the mix with today's daytime rainfall overnight tonight will be looking at dry conditions into tomorrow morning. a couple of sprinkles are possible. looking very brief, though, after that, some clearing throughout the course of the day on friday. that's the sunshine for your friday afternoon. while the sierra nevada starts to pick up on some snowfall towards the latter part of the day tomorrow, then come saturday, some on and off sprinkles mostly during pre-dawn hours. snowfall continuing in the
5:48 am
sierra before we dry out come saturday afternoon. so you see limited rainfall potential here in the bay. so much so that really only checking in with around a 10th of an inch to quarter of an inch. max for any sort of rainfall totals across the bay, the further inland and further south, you get generally the less chance of any sort of rainfall. we do have now, as far as temperatures go today will be upper 50's to low 60's. this is notable because you remember where we've been, which has been upper 60's to low 70's so easily, 10 degrees cooler and really just a matter of a day, a big difference as far as what it feels like as you're heading outside the big difference and what it's looking like 2 with skies remaining, mostly cloudy today and with showers further north of the bay, definitely dressed for this one prepared for those changes. napa and santa rosa among spots are right at 60 degrees today. tomorrow and saturday watch will be the coolest days of your forecast. some evening showers possible tonight after daytime showers for the north bay friday morning. a couple of morning sprinkles than sunshine. the rest of the day.
5:49 am
chance of showers before the sun even comes up saturday morning. rest of the day looks dry and the rest of the forecast does to after that with highs eventually climbing back to the mid to upper 60's train a dog. thank you for that. so we do have a disabled vehicle. this is 5, any westbound. >> on the richmond, sandra fell bridge riders or acts. a teen just north of main street there. so as you're heading across towards san rafale and you get ready, get off his disabled vehicle, looks like one of the lanes are blocked drive times of not change. and that's because it's early. so still 8 minutes as you're traveling from the tulsa one. 0, one heading into the city right now. 10 minutes you can see traffic slowing down a bit. looks like the metering lights just got turned on here at the bay bridge heading across towards the peninsula. about 12 minutes for your drive as you're making your way from 8.80, to one o one and the south bay. 85 in menlo park about 32 minutes. we started off the morning with an issue, a down tree along 2.80, and los altos. however, that's clear to 80's moving at the limit. same with 82. let's
